His fishing activities were almost curtailed during WW2 service in the RAF as a rear gunner on Lancasters. However, the insights he recalls into life during this time are both informative and moving. Post-war, Robert developed a career in the fishing tackle business, first as a retailer before becoming a designer and manufacturer of fishing rods. His wide technical knowledge of fishing tackle is rare and will be of interest to the enthusiast.
Meeting many interesting (and some famous) people during his life, Robert has a great store of anecdotes, adventures and occasional misadventures to tell.
